Vasuki Vaibhav to debut with independent music
The music director has tied up with his decade-old friend and composer Nobin Paul to produce original music under the label, The Grandfather Studio
As part of season 7 of Bigg Boss Kannada, musician Vasuki Vaibhav, who made his debut as a composer with director D Satya Prakash’s film Rama Rama Re, was housebound for 112 days just a short while ago. So the lockdown is not unfamiliar to him. “Right now, everyone is experiencing what I already went through. I was already familiar with quarantine life for four months and it became a norm. So, I am not bored, and am easily able to handle this period,” he says. Vasuki, who is also a theatre artist and lyricist, feels that some quiet time helps in improving creativity.
The music director is set to make his independent music debut, for which he is teaming up with his decade-old friend and composer Nobin Paul. “This is going to be made under the label — The Grandfather Studio. We are going to produce original music and will be collaborating with international musicians. It’s going to be non-filmy,” says Vasuki, who wants to make theatre and folk music accessible to the present generation. “Today’s youngsters are familiar with Chhota Bheem, Superman, mostly with westerns works. However, they aren’t fascinated by the traditional Govind song. So, we have been working on contemporising them,” says the singer who is waiting for the quarantine period to get over to get back to work.
About the projects he has in hand, he says, “Before going to Bigg Boss, I had committed to a few projects which are yet to be released. I have two films, Law and Pannaga Bharana’s yet-to-be-titled comedy-drama made under Puneeth Rajkumar’s PRK banner, as well as a Kannada web series titled Honey Moon. I am also composing music for Dhananjay’s debut production venture Badava Rascal. I had done work in parts for all these films before I headed to Bigg Boss house. I am looking forward to resuming my work once the lockdown period is lifted.”
